The Kubu Science and Technology Institute (KSTI) Faculty of Arts is home to the Department of Performing Arts which boasts four carefully and thoughtfully designed programmes, namely Dance, Drama, Music and Musical Theatre. The current combination of programme qualifications is relevant and competitive both locally and internationally to the Performing Arts Industry. The performing arts programmes are purposefully designed to ensure that students are able to make use of relevant and current technologies in the application of their learned knowledge and skills, to develop and create new, original and proudly African and South African works that are of a high industry standard.
All four programmes progress through career-focused and industry specific possibilities whilst staying abreast with local and international trends and influences from bachelors, bachelors with Honours, master’s and doctoral degrees. The Bachelor of Arts programmes aim to pave a solid footing for students not only to confidently, competently and successfully access the performing arts and entertainment industries but develops students to be innovative and entrepreneurial in the arts spaces. Our Honours and Postgraduate degrees provide in-depth study in specific areas of specialisation and ensure preparation for professional and academic spaces respectively within the arts.
Our faculty’s academic community is made up of dedicated and experienced industry professionals, scholars and teachers who prepare students for a wide-range of career possibilities and life-long learning in the arts and creative industries spaces. The KSTI Faculty of Arts includes locally and internationally trained and practising theatre, television and film industry performers, playwrights, choreographers, directors and producers who are connected and affiliated to nationally and internationally recognised organisations in the arts and the creative industries.
